As finals approach, stress and anxiety come along: the pressure from an entire semester is accumulated in numerous tasks and assignments during the closing week of school. It does not count how you have done so far, finals are decisive and may impact grades as much as months of hard work.

In Christian religions, there are two understandings of God’s nature with time that are common. One is subjective and the over-objective. The question becomes is God inside of time or outside of time. In an interview with “Closer to the Truth,” Dr. William Lane Craig explained two different understandings of time. The first is “Dynamic Theory of Time,” which is known as the objective time. This theory of time is linear, making the “past,” “present” and “future” objective truths, which means the past is gone, the present is real and the future is only potential.

Treat yourself, visit that friend and eat that candy. Being burnt out is a problem every college student faces, and being a student that rewards the short-term goals, helps anyone finish the semester strong. Google defines being burnt out as, “a state of physical or mental collapse caused by overwork or stress.” As fall semester comes to a close, homework is racking up. Being burnt out pushes negativity into the workspace. Grades, friendships and opportunities suffer if this epidemic isn’t addressed.

The first signs of religion are thought to date as early as 300,000 BCE in the primitive Paleolithic societies. There was nothing similar or comparable to modern religion; however, during the Neolithic period, religious symbols were revolutionized, bolstered by the development of language and group living. Apparently, faith is intrinsically related to human evolution, but in which extent does it relate to morality?
